For the garden's Deck the Paws parade, not only do two-legged and four-legged friends get to walk through the 38 acres of greenery and other blooms in Santa hats or elf shoes, there will also be a Doggy Dress Up Contest for a chance to win a prize from one of four categories. Canine-themed vendors will be on site, plus food and drink available for purchase to sate the appetites of both pups and their human companions.
The parade itself is free with garden admission, but there is a $5 fee for each leashed dog that is participating.
Promptness and poise are of the utmost importance during this event, which means the garden asks participants to be there at the scheduled time, make sure their dogs are leashed, ensure the puppers are on their best behavior and are up-to-date on their shots and registrations.
$12-$15, 9 a.m.-12 p.m., Saturday, December 5, San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Place, (210) 536-1400, sabot.org.
